Commuter Students

"Your College Experience Is What You Make It!"

As a commuter student, you have many responsibilities and we commend you for accepting these responsibilities and support you in your efforts. Longwood offers a variety of services for commuter students to take advantage of, several of which you may not be familiar with.

The Office of Commuter Life (Lankford 214) offers the most important services for commuters such as access to Professional Staff members to assist with Commuter student needs and a variety of amenities to make your time on campus more comfortable.

Over 1,500 of Longwood's 4,500 students live off-campus, many of them in the neighborhoods surrounding the University.

In addition to student housing, these communities comprise a diverse population that includes senior citizens, families with children, and single professionals. Longwood University students constitute an extraordinary segment of the population in the adjacent area; consequently, the impact of your conduct in the community is a major concern to university personnel.

  • Josh Blakely - Assitant Dean of Residential and Commuter Life

  • Commuter Lounge Staff
